Open Source Community Africa (O.S.C.A) is for open source lovers, enthusiasts, advocates and experts within and across Africa with the sole aim of increasing the rate of credible contributions by African software developers, designers, writers and everyone involved in the sphere of technology to open source projects both locally and globally, changing the perception of Africans from just billion users to the NEXT BILLION CREATORS.

The community support OSCA Chapters;
The chapter is to bring people together to discuss how open source can help their communities, personal development and how they can give back to the community. This is the heart of OSCA as it helps foster advocates which will eventually become leads for their cities. Allowing monthly meetups, were members can meet to promote educational materials to enable beginners or enthusiasts to understand how open source culture works.
